Ideal for the first time buyer, the only problem being you’ll love this apartment so much, when the time comes, you really won’t want to move on!
Offering both period features and modern functionality, this is an immaculate pied-a-terre studio apartment situated on the first floor of an impressive Victorian home, on a quiet tree lined road between the hustle and bustle of the High Street contrasting with the calm and tranquility of Hampstead Heath.
As the vendor states: “to one side we have the shops including the World Tavern, which is the best gastro pub! Then I also love the quiet and relaxing contemplation time from simply walking through the woodlands of Hampstead Heath”.
When entering the building it certainly lives up to the adage, ‘you never get a second chance to make a first impression’, it is clean and tidy and obviously a well maintained building.
This feeling continues upon entering the apartment, the sense of space is wonderful, the high ceilings really make the most of the 277 square foot of floor space, combined with a large and distinctive period wall to wall south east facing window from which floods in natural light. It is a delight simply looking out to the garden, especially in the spring.
Good things really do come in small sizes, everything is so well organised and laid out. Throughout the apartment, everything is perfect, it has been refurbished to the highest of standards including the things you can’t see too: it is well insulated with double glazing and has underfloor heating throughout.
The vendor adds: “I love the whole flat, especially the kitchen area! (This is open plan with a well planned Island, making maximum use of the space). Having coffee in the morning with freshly baked bread, collected from Paul’s bakery, which is close by, and then gazing out the window into the garden views and out to the city, is a simple pleasure I will never grow bored of”.
“Mind you, there are times when I simply go to Caffe Nero, where their friendly staff recognise me and know my preference in coffee, it has a great atmosphere and reminds me of the wonderful village feel you get from living in this area, it is also classy and stylish. We also love walking around the Farmer’s Market on Saturday at Gospel Oak, you cannot come away without buying something, the selection is so wide, there’s everything you would wish for. We also love the local Cinema and Theatre as well as all our local independent shops too. We originally bought the property as a development opportunity, it’s been a great investment including income from Airbnb, over time I gave into the temptation of moving here and into the heart of Hampstead.”
The apartment comes with a the piece of mind of having a share of the freehold with an annual service charge of £585.
If you’re looking for a studio flat which is newly refurbished on a quiet road with both the High Street and Heath close by, then we recommend you view this apartment, but hurry we think the first to view this will fall in love with it.
